A court in the Baku district of Garadag today refused to grant Hadjizade the early conditional release for which he qualifies after completing half of his 24-month jail sentence.Prison director Ali Nabiyev and his deputy opposed his release on the grounds that he was conflictive, did not do enough prison work and met with his lawyer too often. A similar hearing will probably be held for Milli in October, when he will have completed half of his 30-month sentence. Arrested in Baku on 8 July 2009, Hadjizade and Milli were convicted on 11 November on clearly trumped-up charges of hooliganism and “deliberate physical violence.”Their lawyer has appealed to the supreme court, which is due to examine their case on 10 August.

Sumner County schools stay put in 2014-15 KSHSAA classification count

first_imgby Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — The Kansas State High School Activities Association released its annual classifications for all sports except football based on enrollment in grades ninth through 12th.The classifications are based on school enrollment figures across the state of Kansas.Wellington turned in an enrollment of 494 which puts the school in the middle of the pack in Class 4A. Last year, Wellington was at 477 students, so the school has jumped up 17 students from 2013.Since Class 4A is divided into two divisions – with the top 32 schools in Div. 1 and the bottom 32 in Div. II – it is not determined which division Wellington is in. Wellington was in Class 4A Div. 1 in 2013-14. Chances are if the school has increased in enrollment then the Crusaders will remain in Division 1. But that has yet to be confirmed.The Class 4A Div. 1 and 2 divisions determine post season play in volleyball, basketball, baseball and softball. All individual sports like wrestling, tennis, track, and golf will remain in the traditional Class 4A format of 64 teams. The 4A DI and DII list won’t come out until next week by the KSHSAA when the organization announces sub-state volleyball pairings.The same goes for Class 1A, which is also divided into two classifications for basketball.Much of the drama with classifications in Wellington, is not where Wellington lands —  Class 4A is a given — but where the competition lands.First of all, Wichita Collegiate is remaining in Class 3A (Wellington fans cheer, Conway Springs fans groan). The Spartans turned in an enrollment of 262, the second biggest school in 3A. Haven is the biggest with 264. On the other side of the coin, Hays has fallen to Class 4A. Yes, the community that hosts Fort Hays State University is in the same classification as Wellington.Andover Central, which is in Class 4A in football, has moved up to Class 5A in all other sports. Scott City returns to 3A, while Holcomb, another western Kansas school, has moved up to Class 4A.In the smaller ranks, Udall has moved up from Class 1A to 2A which will put it with Oxford which remains in 2A.Pratt-Skyline has dropped from 2A to 1A.The full KSHSAA 2014-15 classifications are as follows: Class 6ACampus 1584, Derby 1963, Dodge City 1930, Garden City 2073, Gardner-Edgerton 1480,

Tom Brady, Bill Belichick at a loss over Patriots’ continued offensive struggles vs. Texans

first_imgThe offense was again a concern for New England, with Brady completing just 24 of his 47 passes, though he did finish with three touchdowns and one interception.MORE: Tom Brady gives Patriots receivers an earful as offense lagsHaving trailed 21-3 and 28-9 before the Pats made it closer in the latter stages against Houston (8-4), Brady acknowledged the team had to get better before a huge Week 14 home game against Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs (8-4).”Just execution, [we’ve] got to do a better job,” Brady said of the loss. “Tough to get behind and come back. We just put ourselves in a pretty deep hole and you can’t do that on the road. We didn’t get the job done. We’re all trying to do a good job out there, and give them [Houston] credit, they played well.”We didn’t make enough plays and it just wasn’t a great game. We’re battling. We’re trying as hard as we can. Hopefully we can make enough plays and be the best we can be.  “Let’s see if we can get to a good place and put ourselves in a good position. We’ve got a tough one this week. It’s a long flight home. We’ll try to get ready and get back at it.”Watch @Patriots’s broadcast: Tom Brady Live Postgame Press Conference— Matt Velasquez-Jäger (@Matt_InThe_805) December 2, 2019MORE: All Antonio Brown wants for Christmas is … the Patriots? Tom Brady conceded the New England Patriots are still “battling” to find their best form after going down to a 28-22 defeat against the Houston Texans.Sunday’s road loss dropped the Patriots to 10-2, just one game clear of the 9-3 Buffalo Bills in the AFC East and giving them the same record as the Baltimore Ravens in the race to be number one seed. Coach Bill Belichick was similarly unsatisfied by the Patriots’ performance, saying: “It just wasn’t good enough in any area and they were the better team. Pretty much sums it up.”We [have] all got to do a better job. We gave up 28 points. We’ve got to perform better. Got to coach better, got to play better. In the first half, it just wasn’t good enough in any phase of the game.”They [Houston] did a good job executing. Made quite a few plays on second down, scored in the red area. We couldn’t stop them in the red area. That would have helped us a lot, but we couldn’t do it.”Bill Belichick is one of a kind.— NFL GameDay (@NFLGameDay) December 2, 2019last_img read more
